Hi and Welcome!

Glad you found us here at our little blog!  Just as a quick run down on what’s happening, please read through the following info.  There’s quite a few elements to the whole Online Community for Scrapbook Shenanigans, and there’s a few reasons why we’ve chosen to have an online store, a blog (right here!), and forum. We’d like you to feel at home and welcome, so if you’ve got any feedback, please contact us at
- We know that by closing the bricks and mortar store, some of you will be feeling a bit lost, and that you think you’ll miss out on the sociable side of scrapbooking.  Rest assured, we’re working to get some regular social scraps happening, where you’re able to bring along your projects to work on, and also, if you’ve got an order, we can bring that to you on the social scrap day for no delivery cost.  Gotta love that. Keep your eyes peeled for dates etc, on either our Facebook page, here, or in the forums.
- Shopping online can be a bit of a daunting idea at first, but once you’ve worked your way around the store, you’ll love the convenience of being able to shop while the kids are asleep, or if you’re having a bad hair day and don’t want to leave the house, and, best of all, you can sit down and browse the store in your pajamas with a glass of your favourite drop! You’ll be pleasantly surprised with the prices on our site as well!
- Payment online is through either PayPal, or Bank Deposit.  PayPal is a secure way of paying with your credit card – you don’t need a PayPal account to use it, however it’s much quicker if you have one.  If you’d like to pick up your order, you can certainly do that, and if you like, you can pay cash on pick up.  Just let us know when you’re placing your order.  In the transition period, while the Kern Brothers Drive storefront is open, you can collect your order in store.
- We’re happy to post Australia wide, and all orders will be packaged to make sure that your goods are well protected.  Postage costs are detailed in the online store.  If you live locally, we’re able to deliver for a small fee.
- The reason that we’ve got a blog and forum as well as the store, is that we don’t want to lose the feeling of community that scrapbooking generates.  The blog will be a page where you can check out new projects that the design team have been working on, challenges, competitions and tutorials.  If you’ve got any queries on how to use products etc, please contact us (send an email to, and we’ll get a tutorial up as soon as possible for you. I like to see what things do before I buy them, and I’m sure you do too.
- As another service to our customers, we’re offering a custom paper matching service, at no charge.  If you’re stuck for a layout idea, send through an email with a copy of the picture to, and a few details, and we’ll be able to put together a kit, complete with a sketch of an idea for your page.  You’ll be able to nominate the cost of the kit (so less than $10, less than $15 or less than $450… you get the idea!), and we’ll make it happen.
- Once we get up and running fully, we’ll be offering a selection of page and card kits – almost a class in a kit if you like.  The kit tutorial will be posted on here, and the kits will be available for purchase within the store.  Watch this space for when we add our first kit!
Finally, if there’s anything that you’d like to see on here, as far as projects, tutorials, or whatever, please don’t hesitate to contact us!  We’d love to hear from you!
